No moves by Vimukthi to enter politics | Sri Lanka News


MP Anura Priyadarshana Yapa who is familiar with the newly founded political party called New Sri Lanka Freedom Party scotched speculation today about former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga’s son Vimukthi Kumaratunga was joining politics at this moment.

Yapa said he however could not predict on what would happen in the future but no such discussions to get Vimukthi into politics had been held at the moment.

Earlier, Kumaratunga ruled out her son joining politics 'whatsoever'.

Meanwhile, rumors floating that SLPP MP Namal Rajapaksa was set to take over the Podujana Peramuna was also false, sources said.

Party seniors said that such discussions had not even taken place. (Kelum Bandara)
